Public meeting

Dear Colleagues,

The Staff Association would first of all like to thank all the employed and associated members of personnel who participated in large numbers in this first public meeting of the year 2022.

On this occasion, our representatives presented the state of progress of the themes that are of major concern at the beginning of 2022, namely:

  1. An update on the collection of membership fees following the message received on Friday 28 January from the Director of Finance and Human Resources.
  2. The attacks on all categories of personnel and the Staff Association, the budgetary decline, the lack of consolidation of our social protection system, etc.
  3. The MERIT of Top Management in application of the decisions taken by the Staff Council on 24 November 2021. This evaluation is made on the capacity of the Top Management to engage in a concertation on the following points:
  • The international character of CERN: Annex A1;
  • CERN as the host laboratory for Users;
  • The attractiveness of the Organisation: Career Development Working Group, contract policy, etc;
  • The Graduate Programme;
  • Social protection system; and
  • Le Jardin des Particules.

If you were unable to attend, this public meeting, like the previous ones, was recorded thanks to the Audiovisual Service, which we warmly thank. You can view them now on the following link.

If you came to our public meeting, once again we would like to thank you for your presence, your questions and thoughts during the meeting and your feedback after the event.

If you have any questions or queries you can always contact the Staff Association secretariat at All your questions and comments will be treated confidentially.

It is important that the personnel as a whole get informed and interact with their representatives on issues that concern us all. In order to follow the evolution of these and all other issues, don't forget to read regularly our articles in ECHO.

In the meantime, we invite you to join us in ever greater numbers at the next public meeting, which will take place at the end of February. The date will be communicated to you shortly.

Together, we will go further.
